In my opinion, I do not understand why private citizens have been allowed to purchase or own a semi-automatic rifle! PERIOD! I believe that it's okay to have a gun at home for protection however I do not see why anyone would or should own a weapon of this magnitude. A gun like this is only good for one thing and that's to harm or kill. It sure as Shit isn't a good gun for ppl to hunt or protect their home with! BAN ALL SEMI AUTOMATIC GUNS!!!!
